About My Clients

I often work with well-functioning people who are motivated toward change, healing and self-growth. My first priority with a new client is to build a non-judgmental, trusting therapeutic alliance. I'm interactive in sessions; my style is warm. I love my work and consider it a privilege to be part of the therapeutic change process.
